My husband and I went on a Wednesday and were a little surprised at how few people were in the theater. We almost second guessed our show pick....until they started performing. They were amazing!!!!!!! Not only did they put us in awe, they also made us laugh about halfway thru with the juggling performance. They were fantastic and I would highly recommend anyone to go see Acrobats of China.

I was very impressed with Acrobats of China. This show is for all ages. We saw performances from children to adults. I took my entire family and we are still talking about this show and some of the amazing acts we saw on stage. Acrobats of China kept our attention the entire time from start to finish. I would definitely recommend this show.

"Incredible performance"
February, 2015
We went on a week day during the day. We took 4 children ages 4 - 11. Three of them voted it their best show (we saw 5 of them on our stay). We were all impressed by the professional performance, grace and physical strength the performers exhibited.
Tip: Seats were spacious and comfortable and the temperature in the theater temperature was good.

We took our 4 and 5 year old, who are normally squirmy little kids, but they were both enraptured with the show and sat still the entire time. That was 2 months ago and they STILL talk about it. After the show, the acrobats come into the lobby and were great with the kids - took pictures and everything!
Tip: stay afterwards for the acrobat meet and greet!

The young performers in Acrobats of China were very talented gymnasts. We were amazing with the flexibility of the young women and the strength of the young men. Their spinning plates and bicycle routines were mesmerizing. The show would have been enhanced with better scenery and backdrops.
Tip: Photography was allowed when we went. Performers greeted audience members after the show.

Before I traveled to Branson, this show was not on my list. I didn't know anything about the show until at the resort they told that I should go there and so I did. It was WOW amazing. Nice coordination between the actors and even if something goes wrong still they are outstanding. I would recommend to go and watch this show you will not regret it.

The talent, the theater and the energy was magnificent. This is a slow week in Branson, so the theater was about 15% full, so we had an up close and personal experience. The talent of these young performers is amazing.

This was an action packed performance that kept us spellbound. The acrobats were attired in beautiful costumes & performed each act so well. They were dating feats executed with speed & accuracy. The theatre was well designed, clean, & the staff was courteous. A good performance to take your family to.

Wonderful skills. We had many moments on the edge of our seats. We loved the hat juggling men, women spinning drums with their feet, and the "change clothes while juggling" men the best (don't worry, they keep their workout shorts on). The tiniest female does some solo work at the end that was truly fantastic including balancing on 2 stacks of blocks on top chairs stacked to the ceiling. Fabulous and enjoyable.
